Important tracks recorded by Milt Gabler for Commodore Records. They rank with Muggsy Spanier's for their pure Dixieland trumpet sound.

This is an excellent collection of the Commodore originals with some of the best classic jazz performances available. Davison and Brunis are at their best in these sterling recordings.

Format: Audio CD
Gene Schroeder, as always, impresses on piano and one wonders why he did not gain more recognition. George Wettling propels things along admirably on drums, and Pee Wee Russell performs enjoyable shenanigans on clarinet. Condon always assembled the best players from among his drinking buddies, and Wild Bill plays with a macho aggressiveness that adds energy to each song. Condon himself is only occasionally heard, since his 4-string guitar did not project well.

These sessions date from November 1943. The cuts with Tough provide an interesting contrast to Wettling's more direct style. Dave Tough could subtly swing a big band (Herman, Dorsey, Goodman, Berigan) or a small combo with equally stellar results. Tough would die five years later at age 41.

There are no remastering miracles on this 1989 CD, but sonics are reasonable for the era. As an aside, Milt Gabler, owner of Commodore Records, was comedian Billy Crystal's uncle. Crystal spent many fondly remembered hours hanging out at Commodore Records, meeting many of the leading jazz artists of the era. You may be able to find online interviews with his reminiscences, including a fun interview with Terry Gross on NPR's Fresh Air.
